Eloise at the Plaza, Again
Hm, I have mixed emotions about the fact that the Plaza just opened an Eloise shop. As a longtime Eloise devotee, I'm delighted. The more Eloise the better, right? Well, not exactly. The Eloise brand has been so corrupted in recent years (treacly made-for-TV Disney movies, anyone?) that I hesitate to see how they'll whore out our girl next.
On the other hand, I am thrilled without reservation to hear that Betsey Johnson will be designing an Eloise-themed suite. Her sensibilities are girly, but just edgy enough to avoid that twee quality that Eloise should never have. So I'm suspending judgment on the whole affair till I have a chance to check it out myself. Will report back...hopefully with good news. In the meanwhile, go reread Eloise At Christmastime.n
